“As an avid kayaker, I see the devastation of climate change constantly. Rising water levels, dead trees lining the shore, killed by the salt water that now reaches them.
Climate change hasn’t just hit Alaska and the Poles. It’s right here in New York.
Washington needs to do more – much more – to combat climate change. Even if I am the only one, I will stand up for action.
You can count on me. I took on Exxon on its oil spills in New York Harbor when the City administration wanted to give the company a slap on the wrist. I led the fight that foiled New York City’s plan to build 9 polluting incinerators – and shut all the remaining City incinerators down. This is for our kids and our grandkids.”
